It appeared to be a disappointing crowd in Buffalo for Saturday’s annual 3-2-1 sale.
The long line normally seen in front of the Sports Lure was much smaller than in recent years and several shoppers expressed pleasure at visiting a number of stores in the first hour of savings due to the smaller crowd.
A much larger crowd attended the annual Lighted Christmas Parade sponsored every year by the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce.
Unseasonably warmer temperatures may have been one reason for the large attendance for the evening parade.
The theme for this year’s parade was “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”.
